    Gary Hilton Faces Double Murder Charges in NC

    http://www.wctv.tv/news/headlines/Ga..._125237644.htm

    A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorneys Office in the Western District of North Carolina says as it stands now, Hilton will remain in North Carolina until federal court proceedings there are complete.

    The man accused of killing a Henderson County couple pleads not guilty this morning in federal court.

    Convicted murderer Gary Hilton appeared in the U.S. District Court in Asheville to make the plea. He was brought to Buncombe County from Florida.

    He's facing five counts including the charges for murdering John and Irene Bryant back in 2007.

    Hilton has already been convicted of killing a woman in Georgia and was given the death penalty for murdering a woman in Florida.

    His initial trial date is set for September 6th.

    The United States Attorney says they will seek the death penalty.

    The case is being handled in federal court because the Bryants were killed in a national forest.

    Hilton, 65, wore a white Buncombe County jail jumpsuit and said nothing during his brief appearance. One of his lawyers entered his plea for him. A trial date of Sept. 6 has been set.

    Watching Dateline. Very interesting. Very sad.
    It's my own two cents. You don't have to read or like it.

    I was planning to bump this up for tomorrow, but found that the Federal judge has decided to postpone trial again to give GMH's attorneys more time to prepare. The case is now on the calendar for Jan 4.
    Will there be any justice at all for the Bryants?

    Just checked and the trial has been postponed again. It is now scheduled for April 30.

    Apparently his attorneys are needing more time to formulate a defense for Hilton and securing appropriate expert witnesses. They also have been in plea negotiations.

    Gary Michael Hilton Pleads Guilty to Killing NC Hikers in 2007
    A man convicted of murder in Florida and Georgia is accepting a life prison sentence without parole after pleading guilty in North Carolina to ambushing and killing an elderly couple hiking in a national forest.
    ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - March 27, 2012 -

    A man convicted of murder in Florida and Georgia is accepting a life prison sentence without parole after pleading guilty in North Carolina to ambushing and killing an elderly couple hiking in a national forest.


    U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins says 65-year-old Gary Michael Hilton pleaded guilty Tuesday to killing John and Irene Bryant in 2007.

    Prosecutors say Hilton camped out waiting for victims before he encountered the couple who were both in their 80s as they hiked in the Pisgah National Forest in Transylvania County.

    Serial killer pleads guilty to murdering Henderson couple

    Serial killer Gary Michael Hilton pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to the 2007 murders of hikers John and Irene Bryant, offering no explanation and showing no remorse.

    http://www.citizen-times.com/article...CFrontpage%7Cs

    Article contains the family reaction to the plea deal.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Even though there is no satisfaction in a plea deal, at least this case is now over and the family and community can begin to heal.

    Hopefully investigations will continue throughout the south into finding evidence to connect GHM to more suspected cases in order to bring resolutions to them also.

    I sometimes have qualms about executing a perp when there are still cases out there that could be solved with one more piece of info. I am specifically referring to the Levi Frady case as one of them.

    I guess I was thinking when GMH pleaded guilty, it was over, but then I wondered what was his sentence?
    Did they ever have the hearing? I can't find anything about it.

    I did find this -

    Hilton remains in local federal custody. A sentencing date for the defendant has not been set yet.

    The last release on the FBI site is the same one that was on my above post which was dated March 27 2012.
    How long does it normally take to set a sentencing date?
    I am beginning to wonder if maybe they are trying to negotiate with him on other cases?
